a nice entry..... for a change

Feb 7 9:10pm

hello Sir.
Okay. So this entry's going to be really sweet and happy.
I just don't know how. Um... Therapy was fine as usual. I
didn't really do much of anything today. It was one of
those nothing days.

Well.... I like rainbows.. but I haven't seen one in a
really long time! Isn't that sad? They're so pretty. I've
always wanted to follow one. Maybe it'd take me to
Neverland or something. I thought I got to the end of the
rainbow once, but I was tripping on shrooms so I don't
think that counts. But it was a good experience.. there
were lots of nice people there.

Here's a good song:

[spoken] First, a story. A little Christmas story. I call
it "The Story of Schmuel, Tailor of Klimovich."

[sung] Schmuel would work til half past
ten at his tailor shop in Klimovich,
get up at dawn and start again
with the hems and pins and twist
41 years had come and
gone at his tailor shop in
watching the winters soldier on,
there was one thing Schmuel

"if i only had time,"
old schmuel said,
"i would build the dress that's in my head,
a dress to fire
the mad desire
of girls from here to minsk,
but i have no more
hours left to sew"
then the clock upon the wall
began to glow...

and the clock said:
na na na na, na na na,
oh schmuel,
you'll get to be happy
na na na na na na na
i give you unlimited time!
na na na na na na na
so schmuel
go sew and be happy!
but schmuel said
no no it's not my lot.
i've gotta make do with
the time i've got.

schmuel was done at half past ten
and he said good night old
put on his coat to go, but then the
clock cried wait not yet!
even though you're not wise or
rich, you're the finest man in
listen up, schmuel- make one
stitch and you'll see
what you can get!

but schmuel said
clock it's much too late
i'm at peace with life,
i accept my fate..
but the clock said schmuel!
one stick and you will
unlock the dreams you've lost!
so schmuel, with reluctance,
took his thread
he pulled a bolt of velvet
and he said:
i should take out my teeth
and go to bed,
i'm sitting here with talking clocks

and the clock said:
na na na na, na na na,
oh schmuel,
you'll get to be happy
na na na na na na na
i give you unlimited time!
na na na na na na na
just do it and you can be happy!

so schmuel put the thread
through the needle's eye
and the moon stared down
from a starless sky
and he pushed the thread
through the velvet black
and he looked, and the clock
was turning... back!

so he grabbed his shears
and he cut some lace
as the hands moved left
on the old clock's face!
and his fingers flew
and the fabrick swirled-
it was 9:15
all around the world!

ev'ry cut and stich was a perfect fit
as if god himself were controlling it!
and shmuel cried
through a rush of tears
take me back! take me back
all 41 years!

and one it went
down that silent street
til schmuel's dress
was at last complete
and he stretched his arms
and he closed his eyes
and the morning sun
finally started to rise.

and the dress he made
on that endless night
was a dress that would make
any soul take flight!
not a swatch, not a skein
had gone to waste-
every ribbon and button
ideally placed,
and sewn into the seams
were 41 seasons of dreams
dreams that you could feel
coming real.

and that very dress
so the papers swore
was the dress a girl in odessa wore
on the day she promised forevermore
to love a young man named schmuel
who only one day befor
had knocked at her kitchen door.

plenty have hoped and dreamed
and prayed, but they can't get out
of klimovich.
if schmuel had been a cute
goyishe maid,
he'd've looked a lot like you.
maybe it's just that you're afraid
to go out on to a limb-ovich.
maybe your heart's completely
swayed, but your head
can't follow through.

but shouldn't i want
the world to see
the brilliant girl who inspires me?
don't you think that
now's a good time to be
the ambitious freak you are?
say goodbye to wiping ashtrays
at the bar!
say hello to cathy hiatt,
big time star!

cause i say:
na na na na na na na
cathy, you get to be happy!
na na na na na na
i give you unlimited time!
na na na na na na
stop temping and go and be happy!

here's a headshot guy
and a new backstage
where you're right for something
on every page-
take a breath
take a step
take a chance...
take your time.

have i mentioned today
how lucky i am
to be in love with you?

yay the end finally!!! my fingers are tired!!!
